Primus Ecumenicum

Maethrillian, also known as the Capital or Ecumene of the Forerunners. The structure consists of world plates arranged in a spiral formation along a central stalk, with the largest world plate at the center, decreasing in size towards both ends. The largest plate is as large as the equatorial diameter of Jupiter. During an attack or emergency situations, the plates can move into a tight formation above one another, so that the entire structure would resemble a giant sphere, and is protected by powerful shields and other defense mechanisms. Each plates hold its own unique environments, as desired and designed by the Forerunners. It houses their central government, military, scientific, socioeconomic, cultural, and other aspects that define the Forerunner civilization.

I wonder what it'd look like from ground level on any of the plates.

Ah ha! Found it!

I love this Maethrillian it's much more in character with the forerunners considering what we know about them from the lore both old and new.

Yeah, We know the Forerunners are dicks.

no I mean the fact that the can make entire Planetary ecosystems with ease.

How peculiar, and terrifically impractical. ;D but beautiful.

Those civilizations in space really remind me of the Space colonies from the Gundam franchise.

This is very cool. I may have to borrow the idea for a modding project at some point. Hope you don't mind.

I am thinking of making a sci-fi story based on this picture.

Good job on the design. I really appreciate your effort and discipline.

343 already has an official artwork of the full view of the capital. So I won't bother to.
